The European Union is willing to accept UK demands that post-Brexit fishing opportunities be divided using a scientific method that reflects the number of fish in UK waters, rather than the EU's Common Fisheries Policy. Michel Barnier, the EU's chief negotiator, said Brussels could agree to the use of zonal attachment, a key British request in ongoing trade negotiations, if it was coupled with other factors such as assessing the economic impact on coastal communities. Zonal attachment will benefit UK fisherman because more fish have moved to British waters as a result of climate change since Common Fisheries Policy catch shares were set in the 1970s and 1980s. The EU has previously insisted EU boats should have the same access to UK waters as now. and under the same conditions. Mr Barnier admitted that the EU's position on fishing was "clearly not" balanced when he gave evidence to the House of Lords Select Committee about the post-Brexit trade negotiations. He said Brussels was willing to be "creative" to break the deadlock, according to a transcript of the June 23 meeting, which was published on Monday. He said: "I am waiting with much patience for a reply from the British side. If there is no response, there will be no agreement on fisheries and no agreement on trade." While Mr Barnier ruled out the Norway-style annual negotiations on fishing opportunities Britain wants, he suggested some yearly talks could be possible.

The new arrangement forms part of the final settlement between the Cambridges and Sussexes as they divide their working lives. In 2013, Prince William and Harry - then working together on the Royal Foundation - agreed to take joint control of the fund to protect its name and see its future income used for good causes. The Fund received £21,346 in 2019, holding steady from £21,583 in 2018.

While this product can remove overnight masks or rich creams when not fully washing your face in the morning, it also makes a great double-cleanser to ensure every last bit of waterproof makeup is eliminated after your regular cleansing.Since there's no need to have access to a faucet, micellar water can also serve as a midday refresher after a day in the sun or a sweaty workout - and many include soothing and hydrating ingredients like chamomile, calendula, and aloe, so skin's left even softer, too. Ahead find the micellar waters that have earned the best reviews from other Sephora shoppers, and get ready for squeaky clean skin.

People who have inherited a set of genes from Neanderthals could be at a much higher risk of dying from Covid-19, scientists have claimed in a new study. Last month, a study of more than 3,000 hospitalised coronavirus patients in Spain and Italy found that people with a particular strand of genes on Chromosome 3 were far more likely to overreact to the virus and develop a severe form of the disease. The study found that those with the genetic signature were 70 per cent more likely to need a ventilator than patients who did not have the genetic code. Now a new study by Swedish and German researchers says that this strand of genes was inherited from Neanderthals, tens of thousands of years ago. However, researchers have said the link between the genes and developing a severe form of the virus is not crystal clear yet. “One should stress that at this point this is pure speculation,” one of the authors of the study, Svante Pääbo, the director of the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany, told the New York Times. Neanderthals died out some 40,000 years ago. However, as Homo sapiens spread out of Africa into Europe and Asia some interbred with Neanderthals, meaning bits of Neanderthal DNA have lived on to the present day. Researchers say that this particular segment is most common in South Asia, where almost a third of people have inherited it. It is particularly common in people from Bangladesh. In Europe, the US and East Asia, far fewer people have inherited the DNA segment. Only 8 per cent of Europeans and just 4 per cent of Americans have the genes in question, according to data gathered from the 1000 Genome Project. In Africa, the genetic sequence is almost entirely absent.
Turkey will respond with its own steps if the European Union imposes further sanctions on Ankara, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday after meeting the EU's top diplomat.

A small study of high-risk COVID-19 patients may help explain why their health issues contribute to more severe cases of the illness. Chronic conditions like obesity, diabetes, liver disease, hypertension, and heart disease also cause inflammation. Researchers studied 16 COVID-19 patients with these conditions and found in all of them the enzyme caspase-1 and the inflammatory protein IL-18 - evidence of an immune-system process called the inflammasome, which leads to decreases in immune cells and a form of cell death called pyroptosis.
